Default DFI SLI-DR Expert problem

I have heard that there has been a problem with this board and accidently sending 3v voltage to the cpu or something like that and frying the cpu's... i thinnk this has been very rare and has happened to only a handful of people but i do not know much about this. is there a new bios update to fix this problem? and should i still get this board if it has this problem?

I recently got this board. Haven't heard of this problem so it must be pretty rare. I wouldn't worry about it. If you have specific questions on it however, www.dfi-street.com would be the place to ask

I don't believe its possible for the motherboard to 'send' voltage to a CPU... A CPU runs at its own voltage and the people who fried their CPU probally overclocked their CPU to the extreme with BIOS, and then blamed it on the board.

They might have gotten a defective board or something. I wouldn't worry about it.
